More Information

License information is pulled on a job by job, VM by VM basis. Each time a job is run, each VM is verified against the host it is on to make sure that host is licensed. If the host is not licensed in Veeam yet, we will add it to the list of licensed hosts.

Please be aware that starting from September 2018 downloading updates will require an active contract for the corresponding product.
